Bushcraft & Wilderness Skills
Bushcraft and wild living has become more and more popular over the last few years and is a great way to get that wilderness connection that so many of our lives are without. Here at Peak Instruction we offer a range of bushcraft and wilderness skills activities from our private site near Whaley Bridge in the Peak District or, by arrangement, at your own venue.

Our specialty is tailored events for private groups and whether you are an individual, family or corporate group you’ll find our prices competitive and the service second to none. We can arrange anything from a one off activity session to a bespoke coaching package with one of our specialists.

Here’s an example of some of the subjects we can cover -
Ÿ
Fire lighting - Sparks, matches and friction
Ÿ
Shelter building - Natural or tarpology
Ÿ
Water - Collection, purification & filtration
Ÿ
Food - Simple to advanced food preparation and cooking
Ÿ
Camp craft - pot hangers, tripods, chairs etc..
Ÿ
Knife skills - Processing firewood and simple carving projects
Ÿ
Bow making and other wilderness crafts

Equipment
As well as teach you the skills we can equip you with the items you need to continue practicing. All necessary equipment will always be provided as part of our courses however, should you wish to continue practicing at home, we sell the equipment needed. You can order with your course booking or (if stocks allow) purchase during your course. We currently stock: Mora Companion SS knifes, LMF Scout 2.0 firesteels and Fresnel lens magnifiers.
We can also source axes and other equipment for more specialist courses.
Locations
We have access to a number of sites throughout the Derbyshire and Peak District area. Primarily we use our private woodland site near Whaley Bridge but sometimes we may use a campsite or local park. We can deliver almost all bushcraft and wilderness skills activities at your own site too, ideal for schools and businesses looking to do something different with no transport costs. We could even run activities on a tarmac playground.

Events
We have experience of running skills demonstrations and simple activities as part of open days or carnivals/fairs. A bushcraft stall or station at an event really attracts people and we have some great participation activities for all the family.
